Cementing Ford as purveyors of automotive innovation, the new Ford Puma SUV-inspired compact crossover fuses stunning exterior design, best-in-class uncompromised load space, and sophisticated mild-hybrid powertrain technology.
Leaving you in no doubt that this is a Ford that you will want to drive, the Ford Puma comes with a sleek and stylish design featuring an expressive face with high-mounted headlamps, smooth, sculpted lines, a low, sloping roofline, pronounced wheel arches and a sleek silhouette. Making this SUV-inspired compact crossover fuses stunning exterior design with best-in-class uncompromised load space. Puma features a low, sloping roofline for a dramatic, instantly recognisable silhouette, and bucks the trend for wedge-style crossover side profiles with an “anti-wedge” design that features a flatter belt-line to deliver balanced proportions.
sporty and seductive, the new Ford Puma optimises Ford’s B-car architecture using
an optimised wheelbase and track to deliver head-turning SUV proportions.
Puma’s seductive styling belies unprecedented compact crossover practicality, supported by innovative rear stowage solutions that offer practical solutions to everyday storage problems. Puma delivers best-in-class uncompromised load space and rear luggage space of 456 litres. A flexible load compartment can comfortably accommodate a box 112 cm long, 97 cm wide and 43 cm high with the second row of seats folded flat.
Puma customers will be among the first to benefit from Ford’s sophisticated mild-hybrid architecture – tailored to enhance fuel efficiency while complementing Ford’s fun to drive experience with more powerful and responsive performance. Offered in 125 PS and 155 PS variants, the intelligent, self-regulating mild-hybrid system continuously monitors how the vehicle is being used to determine when and how intensively to charge the battery for optimal benefit, and when to utilise the stored battery charge using one of two strategies:
Puma also utilises 12 ultrasonic sensors, three radars and two cameras positioned around the car to deliver a suite of Ford Co-Pilot360 technologies that enhance protection, driving and parking, and are designed to make the driving experience more comfortable, less demanding and safer.

EcoBoost Hybrid technology enhances Puma’s 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine with an 11.5 kW belt-driven integrated starter/generator (BISG). Replacing the standard alternator, the BISG enables recovery and storage of energy usually lost during braking and coasting to charge a 48-volt lithium-ion air-cooled battery pack.

In addition, customers can choose from advanced range of Ford EcoBoost petrol and Ford EcoBlue diesel engines that are supported by standard Auto Start-Stop for further reduced running costs, and a slick-shifting six-speed manual transmission.
Puma’s 1.0-litre EcoBoost and EcoBoost Hybrid powertrains also feature Ford’s industry-first
cylinder deactivation system for a three-cylinder engine, which automatically switches off one
the engine’s cylinders when full capacity is not needed, such as when coasting or cruising. The
system can disengage or re-engage one cylinder in 14 milliseconds.
